Normally when I think heirloom baby clothing I would think of things like bonnets, christening gowns and hand knit sweaters. However, times are a changin’. While we do have adorable bonnets that were handed down, I’m so happy my mother saved this little dragon t-shirt from my childhood. Does it tell you anything about how I was raised?
That’s right, a green batik dragon. Probably circa 1971 purchased at the Ewing Art Festival in Illinois. It’s actually got me rethinking my big push over the last several months to get rid of all the baby clothes the kids have already grown out of. I hope it’s not too late and I still have a few good pieces I can keep.
Are you keeping anything? Was anything kept for you or if you’ve got them, your children? What was special to you?
